`DS = "R" * "D" `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Data Storage Need** calculator computes the approximate amount of data storage needed based on a period of time and a data rate.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**D**) Duration of Data Accumulation - (
**R**) Rate of Data being Stored

**Data Storage (DS):** The calculator returns the size of data storage needed in megabytes. However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The formula to compute the data storage needed is:

DS = D ⋅ R

where:

- DS = Data Storage capacity needed
- D = Duration of Data Accumulation
- R = Rate of Data being stored
